Gresham Slip and Fall Accident Attorney

A slip and fall accident is not always minor. Many falls send victims to emergency rooms in Oregon with serious and debilitating injuries, including shattered bones and head trauma. Each year, around three million older adults go to emergency rooms in the US for fall-related injuries, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The power to prevent a slip and fall accident often rests with the owner of the property.

A property owner has a legal responsibility to seek out and repair foreseeable slip and fall risks, including slippery floors and unsafe staircases. It is negligent for an owner to breach this responsibility. If a slip and fall accident in Gresham injured you or a loved one, you might have grounds to bring a claim against a property owner. Discuss this right in more detail with the lawyers at Tillmann Law today. Call (503) 272-8986 to arrange a free consultation.

Would You Benefit From Hiring an Attorney?

It is a common mistake to believe an insurance company will be on your side during an injury claim. Unfortunately, most claimants discover the hard way that this is not the case. Luckily, help is available in the form of a slip and fall accident attorney. Before you accept a proposed settlement or even speak to an insurance claims adjuster about your fall, contact an attorney to advocate for you. An attorney is someone you can trust to do what is in your best interests for the duration of your premises liability claim. If the law firm uses a contingency fee payment arrangement, you generally will not have to pay for a lawyer’s assistance out of pocket.

What Are Your Rights as a Slip and Fall Victim?

After a harmful slip and fall accident, do not let disputes from the property owner or an insurance company discourage you. It is common to face challenges during slip and fall accident claims in Oregon. Know that you may be eligible for a financial award regardless. You have rights under state law.

  • Property owner responsibilities. Property owners throughout Oregon owe special duties of care to visitors. These duties generally include inspecting a property for hazards, repairing obvious defects, and warning those invited onto the property about known potential risks.
  • Your status as a visitor. Whether you were an invitee, licensee, or trespasser at the time of your slip and fall can alter your rights. The landowner might owe you duties of care as an invitee or licensee, but not as a trespasser unless you were under 18 years old at the time of the accident.
  • The right to file a claim. If you act within two years of the date of your slip and fall accident, you will typically retain the right to seek financial compensation. Do not miss this deadline, however, or else the courts in Multnomah County will most likely refuse to hear your case.

The most effective way to protect your legal interests during a premises liability suit is by hiring an attorney. It can be difficult to understand your rights and take action by the deadline without an attorney’s assistance. Our lawyers at Tillmann Law know precisely how to help clients in your situation.
